Tribal Giveaway in lieu of fee:  50 USD – for winter heating expenses

At the request of organizers, we are doing something new, what one wise woman calls “a sharing.” And our first online sharing is going to be offered in October23. One (14 October translated from English to Italian) and another, an early celebration of All Hallow’s Eve, (29 October for US and worldwide for English speakers).

This time, the focus will be on dreaming, as it is where all of us are currently working the 4th dimensions of astrality. Some people have been conscious enough in the light while sleeping (or waking) to know what experiences are personal and what are gifted by the Earth and her Guides. It doesn’t matter how much we are aware of the astral dimensional link, all of us benefit from honing our perception of the communion, which is the aim of the online sharing.

Practice makes perfect, they say. Well, we can think of the sharing as practice at opening up, telling others about a recent experience in the 4-D light dimensions. In the group, we look primarily at the mechanics of dreaming by using the dreamtime power web/wheel, as we’ve done in earlier classes. However, in this online meeting, that’s only the beginning.

We are going to study dreaming snippets to find points where we demonstrate the Four Dakota Virtues, (Endurance. Courage. Generosity. Wisdom.), and any emotional charges these experiences let loose in the dreamscape around us. And as in earlier dream classes, the focus is on astral skill development, NOT THE CONTENT of dreams, their meaning and interpretation, which only ‘massages’ or pleasures the mental body, not the soul.

If you decide to join the Sharing Circle, please send in advance, by email, snippets of recent (or older) dreaming experiences that you sense were not yours alone. In class, we don’t need a description of the dreaming content entirely, just tell a bit about the scene and movement/action, and ‘character(s)’, masked or appearing as in waking life. Also, what you as astrally-aware dreamer, do and feel while the link is made between yourself and others in the dreaming process. Please don’t doubt the veracity, as we moderns tend to do. Simply write the dreaming report as you are guided, all is acceptable. Even a few lines about any mysterious, non-normal/non-rational thing you perceive while dreaming.

NOTE:  If you are sending a written dream sequence, please remember to title the dream, and write it in the present tense. Thank you.

During the online gathering, astral connections will be honored. Everybody is welcome to attend, although the only dreaming sequences taken into consideration must by submit to ike between mid-September and the beginning of October. Together, the Contraries that oversee dreaming processes, and Guides who give insights, will share wisdom through ike.

Already, in preparation, the Dream Keepers ask us to realize:

As Earth’s evolutionary expansion is underway, dreams of today are different, fuller and more multi-dimensional, than even a year ago. Come discover (and practice) the renewal going on, while dreaming.
